Pros of Autel MaxiScan MS309

Cons of Autel MaxiScan MS309
- Very loud buttons.
- Appears to be discontinued (couldn’t find on Autel website), but for this price that’s OK with me. A little buggy/flaky at times – it didn’t pick up the code, but a rerun picked up the error code.

Autel MaxiScan MS309 is easy to use. Had ordered this item yesterday and got it today, one day shipping. My 2001 Jeep Cherokee was launched three days ago. I connected this scanner, following the instructions and it found an error code. I chose “Read code” from the dropdown menu and it reads as a slow emission leak. Went to a local store, bought a new gas tank, and so far, the light did not appear. Scanners can read Random Diagnostics II or OBD II. You can read more Autel scanner reviews.
